Alleviate the boredom of social distancing and get to know the RPO’s musicians with the Orchestra’s own take on a popular card game.

Orchestral Scores introduces you to twenty of our musicians. Who gets to play all the singable melodies and great solos? Who has the hardest job transporting their instrument around? And who gets to sit closest to the conductor's podium? Both Set One and Set Two are available in full – click on the links below to download and play with your friends and family!

Like, share (with #RPOatHome) and collect our unique Orchestral Scores cards via our our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages. Comment on our rankings and compare each card against each other on five key categories to see which players top the bill. Download them all to your device to play with friends and family! 

#RPOatHome

With concerts currently suspended, for the time being, we want to keep music-making alive in these difficult times. Some of our players are taking the opportunity to record music from their homes, as Principal Flute Emer McDonough plays a beautiful rendition of Danny Boy she recorded on St Patrick’s Day.

Keep an eye out for all the #RPOatHome activity we’ll be posting online in the coming weeks!
